Subject: RE: Bad days in Seattle folk scene
So sorry to hear about Ruth's death, Haruo.   I didn't know her, but I've really appreciated the Couth Buzzard as a venue for hearing good local music with the Seattle folk community.   My condolences to her family, including her folk music family.

I was staying in Seattle just a few blocks from that coffee shop when the senseless shootings happened.   It's about a short block from The Trading Musician instrument & accessories shop, where I've been a customer from time to time.    It was the latest in a string of outrageous shootings like this in Seattle, and it hits home even harder when it happens so close by and also to communities like the folk music community, where I'm just a degree of separation from some of the victims.   

These losses must really be hitting the folk music community in my 'second home' very hard.
